This will come as a massive boost to fans of the Anfield club, who would undoubtedly have been fearful for the former Spurs man ahead of their clash on Tuesday night.
Real have been hit with a double blow, with Bale set to be absent for the clash against Barcelona at the weekend.
As a result, with former Liverpool man Luis Suarez set to line up against them, Real have seen their forward line weakened.
Despite this, the Reds will undoubtedly need to be at their best to get a result against last season’s Champions League winners.
The tie against Queens Park Rangers at the weekend saw them struggle to get all three points, with their 3-2 win coming as a result of two unlucky own goals from Harry Redknapp’s troops.
